Ready to head back to school? Brothers and Sisters Inquiring Change (B.A.S.I.C. Movement) and Clippers Barbershop are partnering together to put on the third annual 205 Magic City Back-to-School Bash on Sunday, August 7. Attendees can expect everything from ice cream, free school supplies and even free haircuts. Read on to get all the details.

How did this event start?

The Magic City Back-to-School Bash started around three years ago. It’s always been a collaboration between B.A.S.I.C. Movement and Clippers Barbershop. The real goal of the event is to not only prepare kids for the new school year with much-needed supplies but also to make them excited about school and learning.

“We’re here for the community and what better way to get involved with the community than with helping kids get a fresh start each school year with new supplies and a new haircut?”

Lamar Benefield, Co-founder, B.A.S.I.C Movement

You know you can’t miss this event if you want to be ready for the new school year. We’re excited about our city helping neighbors in need of supplies for the school year at this event:

Visitors attending the bash can expect:

  • Cotton candy
  • Dessert food trucks
  • Free haircuts
  • Free snow cones
  • School supplies
  • Vendors

To pump kids up about what their futures could look like after finishing high school, representatives from groups such as Alabama State University, Lawson State Community College and the United States Armed Forces will be around to answer questions and offer advice.

Are you pumped about going back to school? Give us a shout @BhamNow!
